. i'm in illinois. i watched both speeches today, romney and obama's stump speech. and romney came across to me as somebody who has a plan, but he was not biting and as mean- spirited as the president. the president came across as mean-spirited. with that type of attitude, i am not sure that he is going to be able to work across the aisle like he says he is. he did not demonstrate that in four years. he certainly did not demonstrate that he would have that ability to do that tonight. host: thanks for all your calls this evening. you can comment online using the #cspan2012. live road to the white house withrage begins at 11t:15 the vice president joe biden and lakewood, ohio. then governor mcdonnell will be joined by two of romney y's son. president obama is in hollywood, fla.. his second to last up for mitt romney is in morris ville, pennsylvania. we will have that on c-span, c- span.org and some on c-span radio as well. earlier this evening in englewood, colorado, mitt and ann romney wrapped up their campaign day in a larger arena before 17,000 fans. the denver post says this is t

, both senator obama at the time and governor romney, spending time with the editorial board. we have talked to the candidates. we have really explore the issues. is our endorsement matter? i think it does. it has been a century at least that we have endorsed a presidential candidate. it is part of our tradition. politics is indeed dna of the des moines register. we take very seriously the first in the nation status as a caucus state. we take seriously the ability to affect candidates that are not on the radar screen until after they emerge from iowa. very informal opportunity to sit down over coffee to talk about what is in front of us. what is the position for that. i do think our endorsement matters. we probably spent a lot of time doing diligence and being thoughtful in all of our conversations, particularly the final one to support governor mitt romney. host: we are talking with the editor of the des moines register. let me ask you about the process. you had a telephone conversation that ran 30 minutes with the president. the white house said it was off the record. and it was rel

. they're both doing events in and around orlando. it is considered very important the white election in florida. to go mitt romney around orlando. why that area? >> he is doing it an event early tomorrow morning at the airport hangar just north of orlando on your map. that is where michelle obama will be as well. that is a swing area. it leaves a democratic, at least or land of us. mitt romney has been performing very well and i-4 corridor. bedtimes released a poll showed mitt romney has a six point lead, 51-45%. we will see if that happens or not. -- we released a poll that showed irani has a six point lead. >> why would the president go to broward county today and not to a swing area to give it his way? >> i think because he gets warming to his book when it goes to south florida politically. this is a big crowd. there is a large african- american community in south florida. macarthur high school is in florida. it is a big area where this area that you are looking at where president obama campaign today was hugely important to bill clinton in 1996. and has been a very strong area, but

both candidates and honest shake down and listen to what they have to say? from the indication of yard signs, i feel it romney win in my bones in pennsylvania. what say you? guest: the gentleman refers to an exceptionally difficult time, to put it mildly, four pennsylvania lawmakers where we have a large number being prosecuted by both the federal government and the attorney general of the state. the governor, when he was attorney general. this state has historically had problems among its public officials. having said that, i think the presidential election is viewed differently by the voters. they are not going to go back, for the most part, and say my state senator was indicted for public corruption charges, therefore i will not vote for president obama. i do not think that calculus those in to the presidential elections, at least when we talk to voters. they're quite capable of separating the two. in pennsylvania, we also have higher levels of partisanship than we do in many other states. it is still a state rooted in heavy partisanship. the big exception to that is the philadelphi
